    Wildfly SSL configuration

    Himanshu Mishra Newbie



      I am trying to configure SSL on wildlfy. I am able to do so with self-signed certificate.


      The problem is, when I import a trusted certificate in my keystore and use it with the alias 'mycert' I used to import the certificate. The error comes:


      Failed to start service jboss.server.controller.management.security_realm.SslRealm.keystore: org.jboss.msc.service.StartException in service jboss.server.controller.management.security_realm.SslRealm.keystore: JBAS021000: The alias specified 'mycert' is not a Key, valid aliases are {mycert.co.in}

      The alias "mycert.co.in" wildfly is suggesting is one, which I used while creating keystore. When I use the alias "mycert.co.in", the certificate is shown as invalid. The browser is not showing the certificate that I imported to the keystore.


      My configuration is:

      <security-realm name="SslRealm">



                              <keystore path="ATT25238.qakeystore" relative-to="jboss.server.config.dir" keystore-password="chnageit" alias="mycert"/>





      below is the listener configuration:

      <https-listener name="https" socket-binding="https" security-realm="SslRealm"/>


      Can anyone help me on this?


      Thanks & Regards,

          I found out the way to create JKS file from the p7b file which I have recived from certificating authority. The generated keystore is working for me.


          1. Convert p7b to pem

          openssl pkcs7 -in mycert.co.in.p7b -inform DER -out mycert.co.in.pem -print_certs


          2. Extract private key from keystore

          keytool -importkeystore -srckeystore mykeystore.jks -destkeystore mykeystore.p12 -deststoretype PKCS12

          openssl pkcs12 -in mykeystore.p12 -passin pass:changeit -nocerts -out mycert.co.in.key -des -passout pass:changeit


          3. Export pkcs12

          openssl pkcs12 -export -inkey mycert.co.in.key  -in mycert.co.in.pem -name mycert -out mycert.co.in.p12


          4. Generate keystore for PKCS12

          keytool -v -importkeystore -srckeystore mycert.co.in.p12 -srcstoretype PKCS12 -destkeystore mycert.co.in.jks -deststoretype JKS


          Using this I am able to get the same certificate in browser, which I have received from certificating authority.
